This Working Group is open to all paid Members of SWIDN (inc all staff of SWIDN Member organisations) who are interested in, and/or working on digital communications for international development.

Introductory planning meeting
We are pleased to let you know that SWIDN is launching a new Research Impact and Collaboration working group for SWIDN members who are engaged or interested in any aspect of research as it relates to international development, whether from an NGO or academic perspective, from private or public sector organisations, or as consultants - all are welcome!

The group will:

  • Provide a forum to bring together members interested in research

  • Exchange learning, knowledge and best practices

  • Explore collaboration and partnership working

  • Share information on research funding mechanisms and explore related collaboration potential

Our ambition is that the group is challenge and partner oriented. Participants will be encouraged to play an active role in the group by offering to lead/facilitate occasional sessions on particular areas of interest within international development research, or research collaboration. The group is open to anyone interested in international development research impact and collaboration, whether you/your organisation has carried out, engaged with or collaborated on research before, would like to engage in the future, or if you are just interested in finding out about what's going on and the opportunities to get involved.

Meetings will be held roughly every other month with dates and themes for each meeting advertised in advance. The first meeting will be a 'getting to know you', with people invited to express their personal or organisational specific interests in and/or experience of international development research, as well as what they or their organisation would be most interested to explore in future group meetings.

Potential dates and themes for future group meetings will be discussed at the first meeting so if you are interested in learning more and helping to shape the future direction of the group, we encourage you to join its dedicated email list and come along to this first meeting. Please note, there will be no obligation to come to every meeting of the group.

Please email Anna on info@swidn.org.uk if you would like to be added to the group's email list to receive updates about future group meeting dates and themes.


Please note that this is a bring your own (BYO) lunch event if you would like to.
